This is an iteration of a VC sports watch which I really like... time will tell if/when this prototype makes it to some level of production for sale.
A titanium/tantalum dual time with 150m WR, 41mm case, 12.8mm thick, with tantalum accents providing the darker gray elements about the bezel and crowns (crown at 4:00 screws down and advanced date), with VC quick change strap mechanism and fabric, titanium and rubber straps made. The watch with fabric strap with orange stitching to match the dial/GMT hands is awesome looking and masculine. Too bad I am not a National Geographic photographer/climber... (for whom the prototype was made). [Photos from professionalwatches.com and watchcollectinglifestyle.com] Intuitive way to read GMT as well.

It’s an attractive prospect!
But VC has to correct the design flows ! First make the tree and nine indicators equal, if you must have an am-pm indicator. Second make the date ring smaller so that it doesn’t cut into the hour/minute chapter . After that I’m all in !!!
I actually quite like the asymmetry.
Makes it more interesting in person than the pictures suggest. This is a clever implementation of a GMT function, as being a 12-hour hand, the home time arrow hand is hidden under the local hour hand except when traveling. The AM/PM indicator is of the in...
Now we’re talking!
This elevates the new Overseas DT which I already have a soft corner for.
Takes the Overseas into a more sporty or tool direction while retaining all the good qualities. I‘d go for this one instantly. Love the fabric strap! My only concern: is the Home Time hand completly hiding beneath the hour hand? It seems the arrow is wide...
